Birthowl’s natural childbirth

Gentlest option – Waterbirth
Women achieve a level of comfort in water that in turn reduces their levels of fear and stress. Women’s perception of pain is greatly influenced by their level of anxiety. When labor becomes physically easier, a woman’s ability to concentrate calmly is improved and she is able to focus inward on the birth process.
Water helps some women reach a state of consciousness in which their fear and resistance are diminished or removed completely, their bodies relax, and their babies are born in the easiest way possible.
Many women report being better able to concentrate once they get into the water. Doctors and midwives who attend water births find that mere sound of water pouring into the tub helps some women release whatever inhibitions were slowing the birth, at times so quickly that the birth occurs even before the tub is filled. Oftentimes women climb into the tub to labor and the birth happens before they can get out…
